Sand Wash Horses – September 2

September 9, 2014 at 2:34 pm (Colorado, Wild Horses of the Southwest) (, , , , )

Photographs and videos of my favorite herd of wild horses – in Sand Wash Basin Herd Management Area near Maybell, Colorado.  Heather Robson, a New Zealander and member of the Sand Wash Advocate Team (SWAT), who keeps track of all the names and lineages from afar, has helped me with the names.  I hope I put them with the right faces!
